Synopsis

Amazon.com
It may be cruel to dismiss Chris Duarte as just another Stevie Ray Vaughan wannabe, but it's accurate. There's not an original sound or sentiment on this debut album, right from the copped licks of opener "My Way Down" to the environmental cautions of the finale "Borrowed Love." Duarte is technically adept enough to get many of the late Vaughan's guitar mannerisms right, from his rich-but-brittle Stratocaster tone to the turnarounds he uses to set up his solos. He's a pallid vocalist, however, which doesn't help plead his case as an emerging talent. In fact, four years after this debut--which beat both Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepard to the record stores--Duarte has yet to make his mark. --Ted Drozdowski

Texas Sugar Blues
Kim A. Mcginnis | Seattle, WA USA | 06/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chris is early in his carrier and the songs feature the guitar more than vocals, which is a good thing for a blues player of his caliber. The 9:39 epic Shiloh is a blues rock tour de force! Its modern but it tips it's hat recording wise to the old style of the early "electric" bluesmen. Its a blues-rock thesis that many will try to emulate, but few will succeed. The song selection is good as the entire album is listenable/enjoyable."
